Bo Bunny Mini Albums! Gotta Love them!

"Family Mini Album"
by Gabrielle Pollacco

Hi! It's me, Gabrielle posting today!  I have to admit, even though I have a number of the gorgeous Bo Bunny mini albums in my stash, this is my first time making up my own album with one!  I primarily do 12 x 12 layouts but I finally got around to trying out an album!  And let me tell you, not only are these pre-designed albums beautiful to look at even before you begin embellishing it to make it your own....but they are so easy to work with! 

 I decided to use the Timepiece mini album for my first crack at this.  Here is a little behind the scenes as to what is going on at my house at the moment....we are renovating our kitchen, tearing out cabinets and counters, redoing floors..so you can imagine the mess I'm in at the moment.  So how can I manage a mini-album in the middle of all this?.....Easy!  The pre-printed backgrounds on the Bo Bunny mini albums make it a snap!  Seriously!  I started yesterday evening around 4:00 PM and was done the whole thing by 11:00 PM!   What really helps is to have a few of the coordinating papers and embellishments on hand.  Then it's just a little bit of cutting and glueing and you've got yourself a wonderful album!  Here is a pic of my 'Family' album with the cover straight on view....
I began by adding the chipborad title to the first layer of the album, then I added some blooms on the transparent clock design that goes on top of the front piece.  Here is a photo of the first two pieces...

Then I simply took each page, added a little patterned paper (TIP:  Noteworthy is an excellent package of small die-cut papers that beautifully embellishes the album).  Here are the pages I made up showing photos of my parents, my husbands parents, my dear husband & myself, and at the end, I did a 'Then & Now' 2 pager of my daughters...
